As a long time member of the Modified Healey yahoo group [groups.yahoo.com] it's great to see Galen and Jody's JHs. Nice work!

Wow! Looks like the V8 was made for the car. Other than the hood scoop, would be hard to tell it was sporting 400HP. Well done.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, ZZ4 , post ? Too much TA head in the clouds, I s'pose. I suspect JH has about the most generous engine compartment, for swaps. Anyone having wrestled the big motor/lbc scenario., would appreciate the cavern. Onward, roverman.

Hey Art,

Here's Galen's performance specs; "This car is "Quick" it has run 12.12 @ 108, mph. (with 60' times in the 1.69 to 1.73 range.) 1/4 mile. I think it can run in the 11's if every thing works. "
